    Assange wants support for NSA whistleblower as WikiLeaks offers $10k reward to ‘expose’ reporter

    Published time: 6 Jun, 2017 12:37

    WikiLeaks Editor Julian Assange is calling for the woman who allegedly leaked top secret NSA documents to The Intercept to be “supported” and the reporter who gave her information to US officials to be “named and shamed.”

    The FBI arrested Reality Leigh Winner, 25, at her home in Georgia on Saturday, and charged her with “removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet,” according to a statement from the US Department of Justice.

    ...

    Assange went on to denounce the suspected Intercept reporter who allegedly shared the documents, and Winner’s postcode, with US officials.

    Does the Intercept have editors like other publications? If so, their judgement should be brought into question.

    Yes though I'm not quite sure who. I believe Greenwald was listed as one of the co-editors but he's saying he doesn't do any editing. For his sake, I wish he'd dump them.

    Either dump them, or write an expose ferreting out the moles.

    While the leak is lame at best (Russian cyber spies would not leave their fingerprints behind), I see where Assange is coming from.

    Jesselyn Radack: "2nd time reporter Matthew Cole “involved in a story where source is prosecuted"

    Stick a fork in him. He's done. And if the Intercept doesn't move quick, so is it.

    Intercept Editors Face Mounting Criticism for Possibly Outing Leaker

    by Aidan McLaughlin | 11:48 am, June 6th, 2017

    -snip-

    The editors of The Intercept are facing mounting criticism for potentially outing a source, after publishing a classified National Security Agency document sent to the website anonymously, which reportedly resulted in the arrest of an intelligence contractor.

    About an hour after The Intercept published a report detailing Russian efforts to hack into US voting systems days before the November election, based on the NSA document, the Justice Department charged 25-year-old Reality Leigh Winner for leaking a classified report to a news website.

    Winner is believed to be the source of the intelligence report, dated May 5, that was sent to The Intercept. According to an FBI affidavit, reporters from The Intercept reached out to an NSA contact in an attempt to verify the classified documents, sending the contact a hard copy.

    After analyzing the document, the NSA “determined the pages of the intelligence reporting appeared to be folded and/or creased, suggesting they had been printed and hand-carried out of a secured space.”

    The agency further determined that only six people had printed out the document, and after an audit of those people’s computers, email communications were found between Winner and the news outlet she provided the documents to. After speaking with Winner at her home in Georgia, she confessed to sending the classified report to the news outlet.

    -snip-

    Surveillance reporter Barton Gellman described The Intercept’s “egregious mistakes that doomed its source,” including informing their NSA contact that their source was from Augusta, Georgia:

    So do I. I don't fault Assange at all.

    I'm not suspect of Greenwald but I've been suspect of Omidyar for a long time. Why are you suspect of GG?

    That brings up many good points. I think the Intercept is finished and I hope Greenwald jumps ship

    I think they used Greenwald's reputation from the get go to gain respect. I am however becoming increasingly suspect of Greenwald himself. Just an uneasy feeling I get when he suggests that Russia might have "done it", whatever "it" is.

    Didn't Matt Taibbi join them and then suddenly leave to go back to Rolling Stone? Rolling Stone is compromised now also.

    I wonder why Michael Hastings fiery car crash was never investigated properly.

    I'm going off the rails.

    It's strange you say that. I was away from twitter for a long time, especially during the months working on this set-up, so I missed a lot. But when I did sign back in to twitter and I saw some of the stuff coming out of the Intercept, I thought "WTF". Then this last shoddy article was the final straw. But I did miss a lot of Greenwald. So when did he suggest "Russia may have"? Because that would be it for me. Anyone who's not stomping out their little game is suspect at this point. I read that Tabibi said it was disorganized chaos at the Intercept so he left it I don't know what else happened. And Rolling Stone? Been dead for years lol. It's too bad.

    I saw, and this angered me, that Greenwald blocked Jared Beck on twitter when Beck asked him why the Intercept wasn't running anything about the DNC lawsuit. WFT?

    Michael Hastings. One day, one day...
